Method 1: Progress_Output

import psspy
ierr = psspy.progress_output(2,r"C:\Filename.txt", [0, 0])

Method 2: Redirect module (captures all output, not just the progress output)

import psspy, redirect, sys
old_stdout = sys.stdout  # Incase you want to restore output back to the screen
sys.stdout = open(r"C:\Filename.txt", 'w')

It can be helpful to use a contextmanager for method2 when you want to make sure STDOUT always restored to the previous location.
